    Looks like they discovered the probable landing site after sliding the first one off and just kept doing it. I would imagine someone is on the ground stacking them as the stop so the landing zone will be clear for the next one
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products

    We have video evidence it has happened many times. There is a "runway" cut into the grass where it landed. There are even grooves in the dirt from previous landings. I am going with they have been doing this for a while.

    I am pretty sure they tried this on Myth busters, but with a passenger on the sheet, and it ended up busted. This is pretty intriguing to watch.

    They retrieved this video from the cell phone of the decapitated body that was recording these bozos.

    The dust blowing off that sheet after it is pushed off the roof looks like a contrail

    The dust may be paint dust worn away by the cables that these sheets are riding on.
